Hi...

Welcome to Trip Advisor.

The direct route is Mangalore - Puttur - Sulya - Madikeri highway. When I traveled this route last year, there were road laying works going on after Sulya. Those would have been completed by now or if it were going on also, the drive was okay, just that you need to go slow for some 20 kms.

Hi Vikas,

I think there a little work left to be completed ahead of Sulya. Mangalore to Madikeri should take you approx 4 hrs for travel. An Innova should cost around Rs.2000 a day. Refer my previous posts in this forum for even more information.

Bad.. It should take around 6 hours. If you have an option through Bangalore or Mysore, it is better.

Thanks for the info.

I thought Mangalore to Coorg takes between 3 to 4 hours only.

And Bangalore to Coorg takes about 7-8 hours.

I am planning to travel with a 7 month old kid so was deciding which route to take. If Mangalore is 6 hours with bad roads and Bangalore is 8 hours with much better roads then I would go with Bangalore.

But if Mangalore is 4 hours with 1 hour of somewhat bad roads, then that would be preferred choice.
